paper X hybrid and paper X

For paper and film packaging

Paper or film? Stay flexible! A single machine can now deliver both film and paper packaging applications.

The continuous Form Fill and Seal Machines paper X hybrid are designed for packaging goods in paper or film. A simple changeover ensures you are ready for the new product and the new packaging material.

Whether using a chain infeed or infeed conveyor, the machines stand apart through their continuous packaging process – without stop-and-go – maximising efficiencies by ensuring there is no downtime when sealing or glueing.

Our paper packaging solutions are available in different versions, depending on how flexible you need to be:

Sustainable film and paper packaging

How can the consumption of film during packaging be reduced?

Due to our extremely tight packaging with a highly precise fit of the film and hardly any film waste during production: When using continuous Hugo Beck machines, for example, there is no stop-and-go, and through highly precise sequencing and synchronisation of the transverse sealing unit with each product, gaps are minimised. This ensures high volume production outputs, as well as delivering an extremely close-fitting, precise and film-efficient packaging solution with an unrivalled and outstanding finish.

The tight fitting of the bag ensures a minimum film excess - an example would be 2 x 2.5 mm on a DIN A4 magazine and a production output of 8000 cycles/hour. In the case of shrink packaging, less film is then shrunk, which improves the packaging result and also reduces energy consumption.

The environmental profile of film packaging can also be optimised by making it as thin and light as possible. Packaging machines from Hugo Beck process extremely thin packaging and shrink films starting from only 7 µm without any problems

Flexible switch to paper packaging instead of plastic film

You have the choice between paper and film. A single Hugo Beck packaging machine can now deliver both film and paper packaging applications. The paper X hybrid advance is our most flexible and efficient Form Fill and Seal machine for packaging goods in paper or film. A simple changeover ensures you are ready for the new product and the new packaging material.

Or you entirely opt for paper packaging in the future. Both uncoated and coated paper of various types can be used for producing bags.
